Her is an excerpt of the article where a make of custon rifles from Montana support the gungrabber Obama. Contact info below.

WASHINGTON — Dan Cooper, a proud member of the National Rifle Association, has backed Republicans for most of his life. He's the chief executive of Cooper Arms, a small Montana company that makes hunting rifles.
Cooper said he voted for George W. Bush in 2000, having voted in past elections for every Republican presidential nominee back to Richard Nixon. In October 1992, he presented a specially made rifle to the first President. Bush during a Billings campaign event.
This year, Cooper has given $3,300 to the campaign of Democrat Barack Obama. That's on top of the $1,000 check he wrote to Obama's U.S. Senate campaign in 2004, after he was dazzled by Obama's speech at that year's Democratic National Convention..........

Good to know even though I never had any plans to buy one of his custom rifles. Lots of good rifle manufacturers out there that don't support socialist liberals.

We should make a list of companies that support socialist candidates so we will know if our hard earned money goes toward our own destruction.

I would start with, Progressive Insurance.

Taken from the article linked to below;

[FONT=times new roman,times]This set of political organizations also includes the International Crisis Group, whose foreign policy staff is likely to contain the embryonic future of the State Department in an Obama Administration [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]. Eli Pariser, who heads MoveOn.Org, boasts about his group's role in the Democratic Party: [/FONT]

[FONT=times new roman,times]"Now it's our party: we bought it, we own it, and we are going to take it back." [/FONT]
[FONT=times new roman,times]They have already done so, in large measure.[/FONT]

[FONT=times new roman,times]The top four donors to these 527 groups in the last Presidential election cycle (2004) were Soros, Peter Lewis of Progressive Insurance, Steven Bing, and Herbert and Marion Sandler [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]. Collectively they gave 78 million dollars to left-leaning 527 groups. [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]That was just in 2004. They have become much more ambitious over the last few years. [/FONT]

[FONT=times new roman,times]Soros, Lewis, and the Sandlers form a core group of billionaire activists and Democrat partisans who have [/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]formed a group called The Democracy Alliance[/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]. They realized that they could magnify their power by working in unison and tapping other wealthy donors to further their agenda (the superb Boston Globe article "Follow the money" is a good primer on how money and 527 groups have come together to have a huge impact on politics in America[/FONT][FONT=times new roman,times]).

From the Coope Firearms web site:

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]In response to the recent article highlighting Dan Cooper’s personal political donations, the board of directors, shareholders and employees of Cooper Firearms of Montana, Inc would like to issue the following statement. [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The employees, shareholders and board of directors of Cooper Firearms of Montana do not share the personal political views of Dan Cooper.
Although we all believe everyone has a right to vote and donate as they see fit, it has become apparent that the fallout may affect more than just Mr. Cooper. It may also affect the employees and the shareholders of Cooper Firearms.
The board of directors has asked Mr. Cooper to resign as President of Cooper Firearms of Montana, Inc.
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Daily operations will continue with the competent staff currently in place in Stevensville, MT producing the finest, most accurate rifles money can buy.

Dan Cooper has spent all of his working life producing the highest quality rifles built here in the USA. He started with nothing but the American Dream and built that into firearms company anyone would be proud of. We firmly believe Dan stands by the 2nd amendment.
We wish him all of the best in his future pursuits.

Cooper has posted three different statements on their webpage trying to squelch this problem. The first two statements were proven false; this one is not conclusive. Has Dan Cooper actually resigned as President? If so, is he still CEO? Does he still own shares/controlling interest in the company? Does/will he get a golden parachute or golden consulting contract? Beware trusting superficial titles and public statements. What is his current/future personal and financial relationship with Cooper Arms?
